We are delighted to announce that Hilary Stainsby will be joining us as the new Programme Leader for the MA/MFA Dance Performance programmes.

Hilary brings an impressive 14 years of experience as a member of the Postgraduate Faculty at London Contemporary Dance School, as well as an extensive career as a performer and educator.

As an accomplished dancer, Hilary spent six years teaching and performing with Wayne McGregor | Random Dance, working in many countries around the world including USA, Australia, Korea, China, Italy, Germany, France and Uzbekistan.

She has delivered education programmes across the UK to a wide variety of schools and community settings, including a 12-year stint as the Creative and Rehearsal Director for Shift Youth Dance Company.
